Midtown’s cultured condo-ers
The & Ori parents: Sher, senior Peggy director, Sher, full-time procurement parent, and former security operations at MedReleaf manager at Hermès, Home: Kids: Kai, Condo 12, & at Ami, Eglinton four & Avenue Did you always want to raise your family in Toronto? Peggy: We lived in Thornhill. We moved to Toronto when I was pregnant with Kai, my first child. I was extremely unhappy being pregnant and living up in Thornhill. We were always city people. Do you find living in a condo is cramped? Right now we’re currently looking for a house, and it’s been a challenge because we love this area so much. The kids are sharing a bedroom now. My daughter came along when I was 40, so she is sharing her bunk bed with her brother. But if I had one child, I probably would stay in a condo. Are there many safety concerns with the kids being in the city? My son walks to school. He goes to Starbucks. He does his own thing. Now he’s got a phone. Kids with phones are life changing. When he’s walking, we use an app where we can literally see him walking to school, and we know he’s on track. When he’s going to his friend’s house, we know he’s on his way, so it’s good. Does your family take advantage of Toronto’s cultural offerings? We just signed up for the Infinity Mirrors at the AGO. We take advantage of every event at the ROM or AGO — we have family memberships. We just came back from Ripley’s Museum too.
